The Station A collective and Aveyron à Vélo have joined forces to create an electric bicycle delivery service in the city: thus Biclooo was born a little before December 2020.

Due to the drop in activity linked to containment, and while “businesses are in difficulty in Rodez because click and collect is not working very well”, the delivery service is timely. Alan Hay, co-founder of Station A, told Actu.fr that the goal is also to create a “virtuous model”:

You don’t have to use the car. And above all, you should know that when a package is sent by post, it automatically passes through Toulouse, even if it is sent from Rodez … for a recipient in Rodez. We want to show that it is possible to offer a delivery service that will cover 4 km by bike in a short time, instead of 400 km by car in several days.

The list of businesses grows over time

The shops are added gradually to the list of Biclooo services. Restaurants, wine merchants, jewelry stores and even cafes are allured by the approach (the complete list of merchants on the Biclooo website). “We are also discussing with the association of traders, who also want to participate,” says Alan Hay. “It is a big job to put in place, and which involves a lot of players”.

To order, you can get closer to your merchant, or download the CoopCycle application for free (available on Android and iOS). The payment of the order is made online, and it is possible to select the delivery times.

For now, only Mathilde Sahuguet, manager of Aveyron à Vélo, will ring at your door after crossing Rodez on the handlebars of her electric bike. But more employees may soon emerge.
